Hi,

Far as I know...DivX 5 installs over DivX 4.xx when you install it.

Only thing I can think of is try re-installing 4.xx again...shoudl be able to keep both on your system

I tried that , but nothing . They have same dll (divx.dll).I tried renaming it and change some values in register and win.ini but nothing. Is there anyone who knows how to do that ?

FFS

OK. I found out that it's possible to have both version of divx at same time and thay work , but it needs little register editing.

..."little register editing"... please don't
just leave it at that. EXPLAIN, if you would,
what exactly you did to accomplish this.

thank you!

perhaps this magic registry editing, yet to be
explained to us, will help those of us who also
want to retain the 3.11 codec as well??

OK , I'll trie to explain .
For Windows ME (maybe all Win9x , I din't trie that yet)
First install Divx4.12 , goto to windows\system folder and rename divx.dll in divx4.dll. Open system.ini in windows folder and find under drivers32 vidc.DIVX=DivX.dll and change it to vidc.DVX4=DivX4.dll
Now open regedit
Editing register
Under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
creat new value
vidc.dvx4=DivX4.dll
Under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaResources\icm\]
creat new keywith name vidc.DVX4 , and under that key enter new strings
"Description"="DivX Codec 4.12"
"Driver"="DivX4.dll"
"FriendlyName"="DivX Codec 4.12"
Now you can start VirtualDub and under Compression you'll see Divx 4.12 and when you click on it will show "Divx4.dll" . Now you can install Divx5.
For Windows XP
Install Divx4.12 ,rename divx.dll under windows\system32 in to divx4.dll
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"vidc.DVX4"="DivX4.dll"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\MediaResources\icm\]
creat new Key
vidc.DVX4
and under that key new strings
Description=Divx 4.12
Driver=DivX4.dll
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\MediaResources\icm]
creat new Key
vidc.DVX4
and under that key new strings
Description=Divx 4.12
Driver=DivX4.dll
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet\Control\MediaResources\icm]
creat new Key
vidc.DVX4
and under that key new strings
Description=Divx 4.12
Driver=DivX4.dll

And that's it. It worked for me.And one warrning . Divx4 and Divx5 place they settings in same place in register so if you change like bitrate in divx4 it will have same effect on divx5.

FFS

I just found out that settings for WinME works on Win98SE.

Thank you VERY MUCH for this tweak, it works great!

Without this I would not have installed Divx5 again, because I need a reliable Divx4.12 to capture from WinTV (divx5 crashes every time when I try to capture in realtime).

ECY, why not just attach it to your post
here, since I'm probably not the only one
who will ever want it...

thanks in advance!

Neither DivX3 nor 4 are open source, so no-one will have a -legal- source code lying around.

Nic used the OpenDivX code to produce the XviD DSF, so you should be able to find that one somewhere. Check ProjectMayo or ask Nic directly.
